Research & development
The main focus of research in the School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) lies in the development of various intelligent systems and computational techniques with applications to a wide range of real-world problems. The school’s multi-disciplinary research includes areas in human-computer interaction, computer vision, simulation and modelling, operational research and computational intelligence.
The research conducted within the school is generally encapsulated by the aims and scope of the Centre for Intelligent Computing (CIC), which in turn is linked to several University wide priority areas, such as Operations in a Digital World. CIC complements the four research themes pursued at the UK Campus, but also takes full advantage of the specific research expertise of staff involved in cross-campus co-supervision of research projects. The research also creates collaborative links to other research centres that can benefit from intelligent computing such as the Crops For the Future Research Centre.
The main research themes currently being pursued within CIC include:
Research at the UK Campus of the School was ranked in the top 10 per cent of UK Institutions in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). The research activity in the School was considered of international quality, with 80 per cent of it rated as world class/internationally leading.
